OVER 2500 TONNES OF CDs are thrown out each year – imagine how much money could have been raised and the amount of landfill space that could have been saved if we opted for selling instead of trashing.
1. Check the condition
Are they scratched? Are the cases shiny? Most buyers will only accept CDs if they are in good condition with cases which look like new. If not, this can be fixed by popping out the artwork and album info and placing this into new cases, which are inexpensive to purchase in bulk.
Scratched discs can normally be fixed by lightly cleaning with furniture polish or toothpaste and a soft cloth – a glasses cleaning cloth is ideal. If you use toothpaste, rinse in warm water afterwards and gently dry with a cotton swab.
